Creatine May Enhance Cognition

Creatine May Enhance Cognition

A recent evaluation indicates that creatine could potentially enhance cognitive wellbeing, in addition to its effects on short- and long-term memory. The study revealed that incorporating creatine into one’s regimen resulted in a 14 percent enhancement in short-term memory and a 12 percent improvement in long-term memory. The potential mechanism behind this memory enhancement is the increased availability of energy in the brain, as creatine plays a vital role in ATP production, which serves as the cellular energy currency. This is why previous research on creatine primarily focused on its positive impacts on physical exercise and muscle development.

Nevertheless, ATP’s influence isn’t confined to muscle tissue; it also has an impact on brain cells. Through its ability to bolster brain energy levels, creatine supplementation may promote the processes involved in memory formation and retrieval, ultimately contributing to overall cognitive function and wellbeing.
